Earth Day is celebrated annually to show support for environmental protection. Several fashion brands are making strides to become more eco-conscious. The good news is you don’t have to sacrifice style to save the planet. Here are some cool and conscious brands to embrace this Earth Day.
Washed Ashore is an eco-conscious handmade jewelry line, made in Los Angeles that uses anything formed by the sea. This brand showcases imperfections and organic forms found in nature including keshis, the byproducts of pearl formations.
“We believe that most people want to protect and take action towards sustainability but don’t know how. Until more recently, sustainable fashion was a luxury and not something everyone could afford, but more and more brands are trying to making it affordable,” said Larada Lamsam, Founder & Designer of Washed Ashore.
Even Washed Ashore’s business card is sustainable and plantable thanks to Botanical Paperworks. Give your wardrobe an instant update with these standout, sustainable pieces.

Every Parkland bag and accessory features recycled polyester, reducing their impact on the environment. Clear plastic PET bottles are collected and cleaned, then crushed into small plastic flakes. Then, they are melted down, spun into thread that is woven into fabric and dyed, and sewn together to create Parkland products. It takes 12 recycled water bottles to make one backpack, 8 recycled water bottles to make a tote, and 15 recycled water bottles to make one large duffle bag.
By using recycled polyester fabric, Parkland creates products with less raw materials without any sacrifice in quality. Repurposing recycled water bottles helps keep consumer waste out of landfills and the ocean.
In honor of Earth Day, two new prints of the Bobbi Hip Pack will be released to amplify the message of reducing plastic pollution. Parkland is always searching for innovative processes to implement to further their commitment to sustainability.
